How small is too small? It’s not the size of the home that’s most important, but how it is space-planned.
This past weekend, in Vancouver, at the Interior Design Show West this 220 square foot home was showcased. In an expensive city like Vancouver, having a stand-alone home with all the modern comforts, in a tiny footprint, sounds like a challenge worth pursuing. The L41 home by Vancouver architect Michael Katz and designer/artist Janet Corne is a modern cube home.
Looks pretty good, nestled amongst the trees, no?
The Vancouver Sun discusses this house here:
The L41 home – a play on all for one – is the brainchild of Vancouver architect Michael Katz and designer/artist Janet Corne, partners in life, as well as design. It’s their first prototype dwelling together: a tiny, modern cube dressed in white, stainless, zinc, glass and charcoal grey.
The above sofa is from Ben Sen, a Vancouver-based furniture company. It’s a sofa bed, very much like our own (also a Ben Sen one).
Prices have just being released for L41 modular homes (prices do not include taxes, delivery from factory, foundation or services). Studio 250 sq. ft: $90,000; One bedroom 350 sq. ft $105,000; Two bedroom 450 sq. ft $120,000.
Those prices seem really affordable, even with the extras fees and land involved. Could you see yourself living in a home that small?
